40 Days of Prayer for the Pastors, Churches, Cities, and Requests of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association.  See Prayer Resources above for full lists and definition of "SIG Alert."

Today's SIG Alert!


Day 35 – Isaiah 55.6-8: “Seek the Lord while He may be found; call on Him while he is near.  Let the wicked forsake his way and the evil man his thoughts.  Let him turn to the Lord, and He will have mercy on him, and to our God, for He will freely pardon.  For My thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways My ways.” declares the Lord.

  1. Pray that the people of Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association area will find their hearts hungry and thirsty for God and His will for them, become weary of their wicked ways, and be drawn by God to Him in sincere repentance.  Pray that the ministries of the Long Beach Harbor Southern Baptist Association congregations and association will be founded on God’s truth, anointed by God’s power, and funded by God’s people.  Pray that each church will be blessed with growing and fertile prospect files, and that plateaued, declining, and even dead churches will be renewed, revived, and resurrected to provide the ministries that God desires to the lost around us.
  2. Pray for Bro. Les Higgins and his wife Tasha and family, as they plan a new church start called Grace and Truth.
  3. Pray for new collegiate ministries and church plants in southern California colleges and universities.  Pray for Rev. Neil Walker, campus minister at USC.
  4. Pray for the 2015 Ignition CSBC Youth Evangelism Conference in December 29-31, 2015, the 2,000+ youth and leaders who will attend, the mission projects, the growth of the youth groups, and the staff and volunteers who will make it possible by the empowering of the Holy Spirit.  Pray for the 2016 OnTarget Evangelism Conference in February 2016 in CA, and for the participants.
  5. Pray for the homes where lives are being destroyed by sins of various kinds, including domestic violence, abuse, gambling, pornography, substance abuse, and idolatry of all types.  Pray that the transforming gospel will cause these lives and homes to be made new creations by the power of the Holy Spirit.
